Description: I’ve been getting the question of ‘Dennis could you tell me what your worst symptoms of anxiety were, and how you dealt with them please’ quite a bit lately, and so it’s time to dive deep. I’ve made many videos around anxiety symptoms in the past few years but in this video I want to target the energetic/imagination side of my skill sets that I used to ride myself of coping with symptoms of anxiety on a daily basis.
Here’s Why We Need To Talk About Hypochondria/Health Anxiety More!
Hypochondria is a mental condition marked by excessive and constant worry by people that they may have some kind of serious disease. The sufferer may not exhibit any physical symptoms of anxiety, or he/she may construe mild symptoms or bodily sensations to be a symptom of some severe ailment.
This can continue to haunt the person even after comprehensive tests have proved the absence of any serious medical illness.
Hypochondria/health anxiety sufferers live in perennial fear that they are afflicted by one or many diseases. Doctors may give them assurances that all is fine with them, but as the pain or cough is real, they do not believe the doctors.
Also, doctors cannot completely guarantee that a sufferer is not suffering from diseases like ulcer, multiple sclerosis, or cancer. This is reason enough for hypochondriacs to continue worrying about their worst fears.
It is important to talk more about hypochondria because sufferers who experience such debilitating symptoms of anxiety on a daily basis not only harm themselves mentally and emotionally, but also ruin many important relationships in their lives.
Hypochondriacs may constitute just six percent of the people who make visits to the clinics annually, but they make frequent visits and spend excessive amounts of time at hospitals as I did for years.
A huge amount of information about different conditions is now available through the internet online. This can also lead to worsening of hypochondria and the symptoms of anxiety that follow. Health anxiety sufferers regularly access the internet and find out about information on new illnesses or new presentations of older illnesses that they were never aware of!
Most doctors consider hypochondriacs/health anxiety sufferers to be of nuisance value and do not mind losing them as patients. There are however some physicians who believe that the assumption that nothing is wrong with the patients is incorrect. They believe that there is something wrong indeed, but the anomaly has more to do with abnormal thoughts, repressed emotions, and memory than physical issues.
Hypochondria can be divided into 3 kinds of mental conditions whose symptoms are somewhat similar to those exhibited by hypochondriacs. The first kind can be classified as a variation of OCD; the second kind can be something like depression, often caused by an event that causes guilt or loss; while the third kind is made up of those who somatize and place increased time and focus on their bodies.
In all the above cases, hypochondria assumes the form of a self-reinforced vicious spiral. Health anxiety sufferers may notice some symptom of anxiety, construe it as irregular, and start exploring for additional signs. All have minor pains and twinges. Further exploration of it does often result in finding more of such minor abnormalities. Thus, even when the doctor informs you that nothing is wrong, you do not get assured as you have the sensations to prove that something may be wrong.
For all the reasons stated above, and for many more, it is important for more debate and discussion to occur on hypochondria and health anxiety. It will increase awareness about the mental health condition, and about new empowering ways to overcome and treat it.
